"I think they're excellent selections. I think it will be a strong team. I would just say, as an individual, I look forward to working with each one of them. I hope and I'm certain Senator Kerry, who is our incoming chairman, feels the same way. Bipartisan support of this team really is of the essence right now. I would vote in favor of Senator Clinton, knowing what we have here on this program today."
